Apparently Ted Lily doesn't need surgery which is good news. But it seems that he will be out of action for a while.

A day after placing Matt Kemp on the 15-day disabled list, the Dodgers received positive news on the injury front.

An arthrogram Ted Lilly underwent on Friday didn't reveal any previously unknown damage to his left shoulder, according to trainer Sue Falsone. Contrast material was injected into Lilly's shoulder to inspect the joint and possible damage to the labrum.

Joint or labrum damage may have required surgery. Lilly had arthroscopic surgery in late 2009 to clean up his labrum.

"At this time, we're not looking at surgery," Falsone said. "We're looking at conservative treatment."

The exam showed Lilly has inflammation in the back part of his shoulder. Lilly will rest for a couple of days, then start a rehabilitation program.

Falsone did not give a timetable for Lilly's return. Lilly was placed on the disabled list on Monday and replaced by Nathan Eovaldi in the rotation.

"Any time you have a starting pitcher who doesn't throw for 10 days to two weeks, you have to build them back up," Falsone said. "The whole throwing progression takes some time too. It's really going to depend on when he starts throwing."

It's good that he doesn't need surgery. The injuries are starting to pile up with Javy also being out 4-6 weeks, especially since he was starting to pitch well.
